Pella Regional Health Center is offering an educational course on Alzheimer’s this week. The session will have three topics for those who are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. The topics will cover behavior management techniques, encouraging engagement, and taking care of yourself. Jill Villalobos at the Comfort House says that Hospice staff are trained to help significantly with Alzheimer’s and they are excited to bring that knowledge to the community. The free session will be held at the Comfort House on Wednesday from 7-8pm.
